for the obama supporters. the united states added 171,000 jobs last month. expectations were around 125,000 new jobs. the unemployment rate is up .1% of a point to 7.9%. the reason behind the slight uptick is more americans joined the work force. this of course is good news. it makes october 184,000 jobs were added to the private sector. numbers for august and september were revised upward. the job numbers helped president obama make the case about the improving economy. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we hired that companies hired more workers in october than any time in the last eight months. >> with only four days left on the campaign trail, the candidates were all over the crucial state of ohio. president obama made three different stops today in that state. first here in hilliard ohio in the center of the state, then to springfield then to lima, ohio. mitt romney was not going to be outdone. here's another romney campaign rock concert an

economy that we came out of. so general ly speaking, this is advantage obama, because he has had job growth since he has come into office with the exception of a few months, but, you know, if i were working for the romney came pain, i would say, really? 7.9% unemployment, and job growth that is not anywhere close to what you are saying it is going to be over the next four years and why should we listen to you about that when you have not done it in this period of time. and then the issue of quality of jobs. president obama can say that he has replaced and more every single job that was lost on his watch, because of a recession that he didn't recreate, but presidential candidate romney says, it is not enough. these are not great quality jobs. so i said earlier today that the revisions to august and september and then the new number for october, 171,000, it is in the vicinity of good job creation. plus 200,000 a month would be good job creation. in august we got 192, and then in september down to 171, and that is in the vicinity and going this the right direction, but i dare say that t

job with a bad hand. keep in mind that all through 2007 and 2008, then senator obama, crossed america with senator clinton and senator biden and other good democrats all talking about how bad the economy already was. median family income after inflation was lower than it was the day after i left office. poverty was up. all of these things mr. romney talks about now were true before the crash. because of the policies he now advocates. and then came the crash just six weeks before the election. he took office and the economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month. now, the economy lost jobs for about 15 months. but when it started again, and president obama's program starting kicking in, in just 33 months, we had 5.5 million jobs, as of yesterday. when someone criticizes an office holder, you have a right to ask them, "compared to what"? so let's look at our most recent comparison. if you don't count the losses in the crash against president bush and you just look at the seven years after the brief slow down we had when the dot com stocks crashed a little bit and the on set of the cras

is what kind of jobs they're going to be. that's been a criticism of president obama. he has made up for all the jobs that have been lost on his watch, but as often happens, the recovery has created jobs that are not as lucrative as the ones before. the president's plan now that he's unveiled focuses on manufacturing jobs. he says he wants to add a million new manufacturing jobs over the next few years. now, the u.s. has added nearly half a million manufacturing jobs in the last 32 months, but over the last few months, we've started losing them again. it's lost 38,000 manufacturing jobs. give me the thinking behind this, bob. this is where i'm talking to people and they say i need the distinction between goals and ambitions and dreams, versus how this happens. why does the president believe he can actually create a million manufacturing jobs and what's the follow on effect of doing so? >> here's the economic argument, ali. a lot of manufacturing companies that sent jobs abroad over the last 10 or 15 years, they are bringing them back because transportation costs actually are becoming
